Discussions that mention prozac

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) board

[FONT="Georgia"][COLOR="DarkRed"]Hi Beka,

You know, I have wondered that for years. My mood swings (if that's what they could be called; I had manic painting episodes wherein I didn't sleep for more than a couple of hours at a time for weeks/then weeks when I just couldn't get up to do anything, not even rinse a coffee cup) only became crazily noticeable when I was on Prozac and then Wellbutrin. I did get some of my best artwork done then, but I never wanted to be a Jackson Pollack.

This is all anecdotal, but I'd be interested to see others' ideas on it, because I always held that the Prozac caused it.

The way we found out I was bipolar was being on Prozac for 6 months... I do have a family history of it and was known for my mania as a teenager so I don't think in my case it was from the Prozac but when I was hospitalized there where 3 girls who went maniac from SSRI's... It was understood that once you get maniac you will always have that tendency...
Hmmm, this is really interesting - I'm on Prozac right now. This doesn't sound good!

HI Guys,

I was alway med sensitive so some older meds MADE ME CRAZIER than I normally am...:) The depression got so bad on some of them I tried commiting suicide. Can't take Prozac, Palamor (sp?) Wellbutrin, Buspar, Elavil and the list goes on and on.

I did take Trazadone for sleep anywhere from 25mgs-300mgs a night. Dee how much do you take of Traz??????

I now take Cymbalta. Only one that I can take.....
